First Intel Build.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So i used to be a AMD kinda guy. But after building my wifes new PC using a E8400 8800GT and only 2gb of ram i was asking myself why wont my AMD keep up OC'd.

Pissed that her Intel system smoked mine by 10-20 fps in Age of Conan i had enough.

it was time to build the *Non Budget PC*

X58 by EVGA

Intel i7 920
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115202

6gb ddr3 Corsair Dominator
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145224

Asus HDMI 21.5inch 2ms GTG Monitor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236051

and a nice new HSF to help me OC this biatch to hell and back

not a bad way to dump 1200$

but i had to buy my wife a new headset and keyboard

some guys are claiming 4.2 on air with the i7 920 i'll just be happy with 3.0

Why don't you get a rig like your wifes?

My sig rig I JUST built yesterday, cost me $840 shipped.



E8400 - $165
9800gt - $120
750i - $130
4gb ram - $50
Xigmatek S1283 - $40 with bracket
PSU - $60
Case - 50-$120
Hard drive $70

What are the uses for your system? If your just trying to get better FPS in Age of Conan, then I wouldn't recommend an I7, yet.
